Some [[]] not showing as links in editor mode but do in preview mode

Steps to reproduce

So part of this issue is that I believe my [[]] links looked fine originally but if you open the Obsidian help doc and close your Obsidian vault before closing the help doc, you have to go through the process of re-adding your vault files again. After I re-added the vault files is when I noticed that some of my [[bidirectional]] links in the editor looked like regular text. If i go through the above process again, the files and links look the same so not sure if I am actually reproducing per say.

Expected result

I would expect to see my [[bidrectional links]] in editor mode look colored and clickable as they do in Preview mode and this is how they looked before I had to re-add my vault after the help doc issue mentioned above.

Actual result

SOME [[links]] in editor are not colored or clickable, as they should be ,however some of them are colored and clickable.

Additional information

I will try to reproduce this later.

It would be very helpful if you could provide the document to reproduce this bug.

In your file, it is just regular text, so you need to escape them:
